"A lot of the time people don't get exactly what they want for Christmas", said Moore.

"Due to the continued popularity of gift cards, as well as many of our local and national retailers offering sales and promotions, we expect the Mall at Fairfield Commons to be very busy during the last week of the year", said Kristie Miller, general manager of the Mall at Fairfield Commons.

The rush in on now to the customer service lines to try to exchange that less-than-perfect Christmas gift. "It's not just the dreaded returns". Said, Kasey Burke. "Mine was a gift that didn't fit".

"All of the stuff that we have here is on consignment", said Tricia Howe, an employee at Heart of Carolina.

"Hickory Farms of OH is having their 50% off sale and I love their stuff", said shopper Steve Miner. Then you have to return it.

Jasmine Garcia, 21, of Aurora, and her sister Sophia, 11, were likewise on a shopping trip with a non-specific agenda. "So, everything was good". The top returned items are clothes and accessories.

Those are some of the same things on Danielle Drayton's return items list. "And games. The kids' games are a little bit too explicit for their ages".




"I'm buying for my daughters and their families", she said. "You can get me a pair of socks and I'll be satisfied".

"So she can grow into it".

Casarrubias plans on making a few returns.

Florence resident Becky Barrier said having four children has made her become a smart and experienced shopper.

Some things to think about to make returning your gifts as easy as possible: check return policies for their deadlines; don't open the boxes; consider re-gifting; and keep an eye out for sales. "Instead of here's a gift, you know".

Many shoppers at Target were buzzing about the store, browsing clothing racks, and home d├ęcor, but the Christmas area had the most shoppers, looking to stock up on decorations for next year, and take advantage of 50-percent-off prices.
